    1671 Biography of William the Conqueror

    Samuel Clarke. The Life and Death of William, Surnamed the Conqueror. King of England, and Duke of Normandy. Who dyed Anno Christi, 1087. London: Printed for Simon Miller at the signe of the Star, at the West end of St. Pauls, 1671.

    Twelvemo. Engraved woodcut frontispiece, title, [1, blank], 1-18, 91, 20-40, 37-39, 36. Mispaginated.

    Modern plain, stiff paper boards with a printed label adhered to the front cover. New endpapers. Significant soiling and paper loss to the fore-edge margin of the textblock, most noticeable on the terminal pages. Scattered very minor contemporary marginalia, including the title page. Though the pagination is technically incorrect, the catchwords match. A very good copy of an intriguing antiquarian title.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
